EUGENE, Ore. -- When heavy snow and rain leave your tree in your neighbor's yard, you've got your work cut out for you.
"My wife tells me, 'You know that tree that you thought was going to come down? Guess what ... it's down,'" said south Eugene resident Bob Kattner.
A tree on the Kattner's property toppled onto their neighbor's yard sometime Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning as record heavy wet snow piled up on branchest.
Bob and Deanna Kattner wasted no time in setting to work on the mess.
"Well, it's my tree. So there it is," said Bob Kattner.
The tree missed the neighbor's roof, deck and light pole - but blocked entry or exit from Kimberly Harding's house.
"When I woke up this morning there was a giant tree across the entirety of my yard, my driveway, and my door. So basically, no entrance or exit," she said.
The neighborhood rallied to help clean up the mess.
"It's really nice, the neighbors have all come together and we've had the neighborhood cleanup crew out here," Deanna Kattner said Wednesday.
"It's a huge, old tree. I mean, that's one of the risks you take living in this beautiful, old neighborhood. We live in the woods, with houses in the woods, and trees fall down in the woods," said Harding. "I'm really grateful it's a wonderful neighborhood."
